Welcome to the oral examination for the European Diploma in Neurointervention (EDNI) 2023.
Only candidates who have passed the written part are eligible to take the oral.
Date: Friday 1st September 2023 – your exact timeslot will be communicated to you in due course.
Exam modality: The exam will take place online via Zoom. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are able to connect via Zoom at the appropriate time and to ensure you have a working camera on your device and also to be able to share your screen.
Format of the exam: The first 25 minutes of the oral exam consists of questions. You will be asked to discuss at least 2-3 of the 5 themes included in the curriculum: tumor, aneurysms, stroke, vascular malformations and neurovascular anatomy. Pediatrics could be included in these themes where appropriate. The focus will be on (1) basic knowledge and (2) understanding and ability to discuss.
The second 20 minutes will be two cases.You will have to prepare one case representing one of the main four themes (tumor, aneurysms, stroke or vascular malformations) and present it to the examiners via a shared screen in Zoom. It should be aPowerPoint presentation of 5-10 slides (10 slides maximum.) The examiners will then have one case prepared, also shared in Zoom and representing one of the themes, and you will be asked questions around this case.
The focus will be on understanding the pathology, discussing treatment options, etc – basically, how you would approach such a case yourself and the reasoning behind your suggestions. You should know about risks and benefits with different approaches. You don ́t need to agree with the examiners in all details but should be able to defend your view in a structured and “academic” way.
